Main Street Accounting vs. Wall Street Accounting

On November 15th, 1999,  ABC Inc. was born. From the very first day of operation, ABC’s mission has been to service the clientele in the best possible way, to truly understand customer needs and do whatever it takes to fulfill those needs.  This clear desire to deliver outstanding client service has always been the driving force behind ABC Inc.

With phones, emails, faxes, we are a few micro-seconds away.  We are not very big because we are selective about the clients we accept.  Being small does not require an apology.

“We give our clients more than a good deal; we provide them the means to succeed.”

Business Philosophies at ABC Consultants

We at Accredited Business Consultants, Inc.  (ABC Consultants) do not predict the outcome, we create it.

You as a businessman have the power to run your own business.  We have the power to accelerate it……

We operate from a proactive rather than a reactive mindset.

Our consulting services separate us from traditional accounting service, which merely recap past events.

We are not historians, but look and interpret the future, and subsequently we help our clients to look and position themselves to face the future.  We are large enough to offer an array of services and small enough to provide the personal touch.  Our purpose is simple; to change the financial direction of the business and family.

You have goals for yourself and your business.  But when you have a dream, it helps to have someone minding the details.  At ABC Consultants you can address a range of personal and business issues such as cash flow, tax planning, retirement planning, strategic planning, business valuation and fraud examination.

With expertise and insight you need to make smart decisions, so you can control your future.  We take pride of our work and we are proud of our businesses.

Honesty and integrity are the key factors when choosing a person to do business with.  We are committed to providing that kind of service.  Anyone you refer to us will have our special attention.

Thank you,
Nick A. Kousmanidis
